Harnessing the Power of PARTNER CPRM: Visible Network Labs and Keeping Forests Collaborate to Protect the U.S. South’s Forests through Advanced Community Partner Relationship Management

Denver, CO April 6, 2023: Visible Network Labs, a leading provider of network analysis tools and consulting services, is proud to announce a new partnership with Keeping Forests, a groundbreaking organization that aims to catalyze market-based forest conservation across the southern United States. By leveraging the power of network science and collaboration, this partnership will facilitate the development of innovative solutions and strategies for the protection and preservation of forests in the region.

Keeping Forests is committed to convening a community of multi-sector partners, including government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private sector actors, to develop actionable insights and strategies for forest conservation. The success of this approach depends on a strong foundation of collaboration and the ability to understand and engage with the complex network of stakeholders involved in this critical mission.

Visible Network Labs will support Keeping Forests in building capacity to leverage and engage networks for forest conservation by developing a comprehensive network map and living, web-based tool. This tool will enable Keeping Forests to inform strategy, measure outcomes, and break down silos, ultimately enhancing the ability of the entire region to collaborate more effectively on shared priorities. 

Dr. Danielle Varda, CEO of Visible Network Labs, expressed her enthusiasm about the partnership:

"We are thrilled to be working with Keeping Forests to help them leverage the power of network science for improved collaboration. This partnership will not only help Keeping Forests reach their goal of protecting forests across the U.S. South, but will also contribute to the broader community by enhancing regional collaboration on shared priorities. By working together, we can create a lasting impact on the health and resilience of our forests and the communities that depend on them."

The partnership with Visible Network Labs is a significant milestone for Keeping Forests, as it represents a critical step in achieving their vision and mission. As the organization continues to grow and develop, the ability to effectively collaborate with a diverse set of actors will become increasingly important. The insights and tools provided by Visible Network Labs will help ensure that Keeping Forests and its partners can work together to create scalable, innovative solutions for forest conservation in the U.S. South.

In the coming months, Visible Network Labs and Keeping Forests will invite stakeholders to participate in a Social Network Analysis effort to further enhance the understanding and engagement of the network.
